The new iOS 12 feature will let users report unwanted spam texts and calls

With the release of iOS 12, Apple is poised to add a feature that Android users already know well: Spam reporting. It appears that the feature won't be baked in to run automatically at the system level, as it does on Google OS phones. In a post, Apple's developer website shares the details on “SMS and call spam reporting,” which is described as an app extension that users will have the option of turning on or off.

The website goes on to explain that users will be able to swipe left on individual items from their “Recents” list or in their Messages transcript. From there, they simply select the “Report” option and reporting feature handles things from there. Blocked numbers are also automatically added to the device's Blocked Contacts list.
